NPR’s Planet Money podcast looks at how we got from mealy, nasty apples to apples that actually taste delicious. The story starts with a Minnesota apple breeder who discovered a miracle apple (spoiler alert: it’s Honeycrisp!). But discovering that apple was not enough. Pepin Heights Owner Dennis Courtier is interviewed.
